ok so my anxiety has more or less gone. I have, for what reason I dont know, been having DR almost daily for a week now after having been DR free almost a month. I still have anxiety but it is minimal most days. I try to just go on and I rarely think of why because it does no good. However I have noticed that more recently I dont feel right. Another one of those subtle observations.. like hey I just realized ... whatever. you know well... it has come to my attention that I feel stale. Does that make sense? I cant even explain it. It is just the word that comes to mind automatically. Anyone understnad this feeling?

i dunno. I dont know how to explain it. Like some days I just feel worn... old ... stale... I dunno. My anxiety gets so bad some days, so days it is from the DR thouh I rarely have it, (just small bouts of it here and there) that I dunno. Its like I am just trying to make it thorugh the day everyday. Trying to make it till bedtime when I can finally sleep! (I feel like I cant sleep enough though I never sleep anymore than usual, about 8hrs) I dunno. I feel as though I have meaning and purpose in my life. My owrk needs me. I feel more sane when I work. My children need me and I need them! I love them to death and dont know what I would do without them! Yet somehow with how I keep feeling stressed of and off and off and on I just feel like I am not living but trying to make it through each day. Yes I know take it a day at a time.... this somehow feels like I am forcing the days some days. MOSTLY because of my anxiety. I dunno... it gives me this stale, plain feeling. I still have joys and happiness. No flat emotions or anything... I dunno... I cant explain any better than that!
anyone?

I kind of know what you mean,, I don't know if it is what I would call stale, like old pizza or something, But I find myself tolerating the day and can't wait till I go to sleep and don't have to experience some of this crap, Where all my dreams I am completely normal and well. I think it is because we monitor every little change and think it is a sign of some impending mental breakdown or loss or reality or loss of identity. We just dont feel like ourselves .. like we used to so we are not comfortable completely with our waking hours adn sleep seems to be the rest from all this.

i feel 'stale'. like my bodily hormones have dried up or something, or like no vitality/ unrefreshed
perhaps a change of diet may help?
